Proger completed the revision and upgrade of the concept design of the Diamond Multifunctional Centre in Nur-Sultan, the capital of Kazakhstan formerly known as Astana. The next steps of the project, which include final and executive design (architectural, structural and plant engineering), will be completed by 2021.
The Diamond Centre is a mixed-use complex consisting of a 111-metre residential tower and a 58-metre office tower standing on a plate formed by the 2-level shopping centre and associated underground car park. The complex is located in the immediate vicinity of the site that hosted Expo 2017, an ultra-modern area undergoing major expansion around the former Kazakhstan Pavilion, the iconic spherical glass building now housing the Museum of Future Energy.
In Kazakhstan Proger has been a key player in the oil & gas sector since the early 2000s, through its local company Caspian Proger, and now this important assignment in the construction sector represents a major new development for the company and a further opportunity for growth in the Central Asian republic.
